these expectations that we're going to see natural gas supplies really grow over the next several years. the energy information administration today saying that by 2017 or so, we will be an exporter of natural gas. this on top of what the international energy agency has said about natural gas and the fact we're continuing to grow here with our supplies. back to you. >> all right. thanks so much, sharon. of course, stocks not able to hold on to early gains today. the market is lower right now. look at this. this market is down about 3%, just over 3% since last week's presidential election. many believe it's mainly on worries about looming fiscal cliff. >> here to help us break down the trading day, mark freeman and bob posani. what do you think? do you think we get a resolution in the fiscal cliff that will please the market? everybody believes we're going to get something. will it please the market? >> i think that's a great point. to a certain degree, i'm wondering if we're too fixated on what the details will be as opposed to saying, look, do we get an agreement? when we look at it from the marke

have economic growth many of which are put in by obama for the solyndra green-type energy programs. let's bring the rates down. boehner was clear he wanted increase revenues it is not a tax increase to put more americans at work. if our recovery was growing the rate reagans did more americans would be at work. in terms of raising revenue which boehner grew about. if you grew the economy at reagan levels instead of two percent and obama and french levels, just growing faster and do that for a decade, the federal government gets trillions in taxes. we could undo the damage by having higher growth. >> gretchen: that's the difference in ideology. raise it to 3#.9 percent x. replace the alternative minimum tax with the buffet and raise the state tax and long-term capitol gains from 15-20. where do you think that those four points will go in negotiations with the republicans? >> mr. boehner said one thing he's not willing to give up on is maintaining the 35 percent top rate. obama wants 39.6 percent. it is rather significant increase. the obama care tax increase. he takes the tax rate on half

, there are all kinds of interesting models that are emerging throughout the states. with respect to energy independence and greater use of natural gas which is going to constitute a whole new opening economically for us. there are states that are way ahead of others in that regard. so paying close attention to the best practices that are emerging in the 50 states, i think, is a critically important thing for republicans to do as well. >> let's go there. we had david frum on the other day. i don't agree with david on all the issues, but he talked about how conservatives and republicans were lied to. they were lied to by -- i think -- what did he call them? the conservative entertainment complex. and they were. i mean, what would happen is, a pollster who basically was engaging in witchcraft and not polling would come out with a poll that would show -- you pick the state that you wanted mitt romney to be ahead in, he would give it to you. the top conservative website would then put it on the top of the page. and then cable news channels and talk radio hosts would come on. and all day we woul

doubled the production of clean energy, which promises to reduce the utilization of fossil fuels for power generation. and we continued to invest in potential breakthrough technologies that could further remove carbon from our atmosphere. but we haven't done as much as we need to. so what i'm going to be doing over the next several weeks, next several months, is having a conversation, a wide ranging conversation with scientists, engineers, and elected officials to find out what can -- what more can we do to make a short-term progress in reducing carbons, and then, you know, working through an education process that i think is necessary, a discussion, a conversation across the country about, you know what realistically can we do long-term to make sure that this is not something we're passing on to future generations that is going to be very expensive and very painful to deal with. i don't know what either democrats or republicans are prepared to do at this point because, you know this is one of those issues that is not just a partisan issue. i also think there is -- there are regional diffe
